1. Was HCFA's methodology as set forth in Transmittal 378 for determining the amount of the exception from the routine cost
limits for hospital-based skilled nursing facilities, and as applied by the Intermediary to the Provider for FYE December

a rollover interim exception for FYE December 31, 1994?
